What happened

What happened to Delrawn Small?


On July 3, 2016, NYPD Officer Wayne Isaacs, who was off-duty at the time, cut Delrawn Small's car off while driving erratically down Atlantic Ave, endangering Delrawn’s family as well as others who were on the road. Delrawn and Isaacs both stopped at light on the corner of Bradford St. and Atlantic Ave. While sitting in his car, Isaacs unholstered his gun simply because he saw Delrawn walk out of his car.

When Delrawn approached Isaacs car, Isaacs fired his gun, not one or two, but three times. Delrawn stumbled, fell to the ground and soon bleeding out from the shots. All of this occurred in front of Delrawn's partner, their infant son and her teenage daughter.

Isaacs did not attempt to provide any emergency aid or try to help Delrawn in any way. Instead, he called 911 and lied to them, saying that he had been attacked and failing to mention that he had just shot someone and that Delrawn was bleeding out on the ground. After the incident, Isaacs and the NYPD promoted the lie that Delrawn had attacked Isaacs until surveillance footage surfaces, which shows Isaacs shooting Delrawn as soon as he approaches the car.

Isaacs' murder trial concluded last Nov - outrageously with an acquittal and the NYPD still has yet to bring charges against him. Instead, he is collecting an inflated NYPD check. Isaacs is a danger to our communities and must be fired from the NYPD!


Endless Delays

How 2 NYC Mayors, 3 NYPD Police Commissioners, Officer Wayne Isaacs, the PBA (Police Union), the CCRB, the City's Law Department, and Judge Danny Chun have delayed the discipline of NYPD officer Wayne Isaacs for 6.5 years. 

FACTS! Since NYPD officer Wayne Isaacs murdered Delrawn Small on July 3, 2016 there have been endless delays.

  • The NYPD decided not to bring misconduct charges against NYPD officer Wayne Isaacs for killing unarmed Delrawn Small in 2016 in front of Delrawn children.

  • In May 2018, Delrawn's family filed a complaint with the Civilian Complaint Review Board requesting the CCRB investigate officer Wayne Isaacs for misconduct.

  • In October 2020 (over 2 years ago), the CCRB substantiated fireable misconduct charges against NYPD officer Isaacs.

  • The NYPD took almost a year to deliver the CCRB's charges to Officer Wayne Isaacs.

  • In March 2021 Officer Isaacs filed a lawsuit (article 78) to try to stop the CCRB from disciplining him. In January 2022, Isaacs baseless lawsuit was dismissed and the CCRB was able to proceed.

  • In 2022, the Police Benevolent Association (PBA) asked Police Commissioner Sewell to take the case away from the CCRB and kill it, but we stopped them!

  • Now Judge Danny Chun has been delaying the scheduling of Officer Wayne Isaacs discipline trial by refusing to rule on the CCRB's motion to unseal Isaacs murder trial for 15 months and counting.

  • In December 2022, Judge Chun finally agreed to rule by mid-January but he didn't.

Mayor Eric Adams and Deputy Mayor Philip Banks have ignored all the family's request for support in 2022. Meanwhile Officer Wayne Isaacs is still collecting a paycheck, receiving overtime and pay increases. Learn how you can help below.
